Thats my Mom.

That was my Mom (Cathy Smith) who was the model for that picture. As she tells it Mr. Rockwell came out on the play ground and looked at a bunch of girls and chose her. We are all very proud of her. She also has some sketches Mr. Rockwell did and gave to her. Would love to know what happened to the painting.

Prom Dress
by: Bonne Darling

I've heard that everyone has a twin, and I was shocked and pleased to meet her on a calendar. My thoughts went from "my hair was exactly like that", 'I dressed that way down to the loafers 'eating up her socks'". Then I looked closely at the face in the mirror. The model and I look like twins at age 15. Never have I thought myself pretty, cute maybe, but not pretty enough to be an artist's model. But there I am! How I'd love to see what Cathy looked like as an adult. I was born in 1941 in Missouri and after moving around the county, am back in the Show Me State. At this writing I'm 74.
